Sighting Details

It was my birthday, two friends and I walked onto the front porch to have a smoke. We were sober, and in good spirits. My friend spotted it first, between the bare tree branches behind my house; it was a flickering fireball that appeared to be travelling easterly toward us, but slowly banked to a continued southward direction. There are usually planes in the area, and the object seemed to be at the normal altitude for a plane, but we carefully observed that it did not have plane-identifying lights at all. All we could see of the object was its light, which was varied red-orange in color, with a fire-like glow, but no tail or smoke. We observed it steadily making its way to the south, neither gaining nor decreasing in speed or altitude for several minutes. I can't speak for my friends, but I was very pleased to be watching it, my first UFO sighting. When the object was very far to the southwest, it seemed to flicker and dim before quickly snuffing out. It is unclear whether the flickering was caused by the object itself, or from the atmospheric distance between it and our eyes. I felt no dread during this experience, except after we'd gone back inside to discuss it. My friend told me she'd thought it was a meteor at first, and the thought of that gave me a very uneasy feeling. I should note that it's not her first sighting, though it was her first night sighting. I've asked them to fill out their own forms, after just finding this website today. Much love.
